    hello please quote:

    whats the maximum sets of four 1 day passes u can buy per person?(and how long does the single day pass sell out)?

  • whypick1whypick1 PAX [E] Info Booth Manager ~2' from an LCDRegistered User regular
    During the ticket sales this year, the rule of thumb was that more than 4 complete sets of passes in a single order would get it flagged.

    Is it PAX <insert nearest future PAX here> yet?

    So I've been crawling trying to figure this out.

    Do they hand out PAX PRIME swag bags at the door to the first X amount of people?

    Am I missing out on something?

    Is there somewhere I need to go early Sunday morning to get a "Swag Bag"?

    Thanks in advanced!

    Swag bags are in the queue room. No line.

  • MagnusCarterMagnusCarter Registered User regular
    Swag bags are put out in the Queue room at 11:30 every day. The last couple of days they've still had them out at 2:00 pm, so you probably have a couple of hours to get one.

    Speaking of Swag Bags, does anyone know if on Monday I would be allowed to come back later in the day and see if there are any extra bags? My girlfrend was supposed to attend with me and ended up in the hospital, so she wants me to see about getting her one still.

    Honestly? Nobody will care if you just take two.

    There are enough people like me that are going all four days and only take one bag that there are plenty of extra left over. At least from what I've seen.

    Hello Everyone, quick question.

    I was only able to get a pass for Monday, so I'll be heading there tomorrow. Wanted to ask what the Swag situation is like for people who have already been this time around.

    Is there anyone who knows, or knows someone who knows someone who knows, the definitive playlist for the music loop that plays before the start of panels? Specifically the one for PAX Prime 2013, which I believe is the same regardless of theater.

    My friend kept commenting about how they kept playing the Protomen at the start of every panel.

    so are there dates for 2014 yet?

  • mcdermottmcdermott Registered User regular

    Should be labor day again. The only reason it moved a year or two back was because another conference has the WSCC booked that weekend every so many years, like in perpetuity. I think we have a couple more years until that happens again.

    WSCC website says PAX Prime 2014 will be August 29 - September 1 :)http://wscc.com/about_us/calendar.aspx Just click the arrow to go to later months and choose August

    I think it's every 7 years that group has the convention center. I know my first Prime in 2011 was one of the "off years" (I guess it would've actually been the first off year since PAX wasn't in WSCTC in 2004.)

    yeah, I would guess that the WSCC website dates are pretty solid.

    May be a stupid question, but what happens to the con-specific Penny Arcade merch after the convention? I didn't have the funds at the time to get a scarf since it was my first time at PAX, and now I'm afraid that my chance has come and gone.

  • whypick1whypick1 PAX [E] Info Booth Manager ~2' from an LCDRegistered User regular
    Yeah, your chance has gone. "Exclusive" means exclusive.

    Many things that don't have a specific year (or specific pax location) may turn up again. I forget if the scarf says 2013 on it, but if not I'd bet it shows up in 2014.

    I'm afraid the scarf does have 2013 on it.

    Hi there. I am new to PAX Prime. How and when can I purchase 4 day passes for 2014 and what are the dates for the event? Also I don't know if I'll get a notification of an answer in my email so just in case here it is [email protected] thank you.

    You aren't going to get faster answers by asking the same stuff over and over in multiple threads. Nobody is going to email you.

    Does anyone know the name of the vendor that was raffling off desk chairs near the PC free play area? They were the uber-adjustable high-end ones that had an American Medical (or Chiropractic) Association endorsement/approval. I lost the business card, but am looking to buy a new office chair now, and can't remember the vendor's name.

    -edit-
    I figured it out. It's Haworth. The chairs they were showing were the Zody Task Home Office and Zody Task Executive. Most comfortable thing I have ever rested my ass in.

    Yeah, those were pretty great.
